Proverbs – Chapter 14


Chapter 14 seems to be very similar to the three preceding chapters in that there are several things that keep being repeated, but in slightly different ways. This must mean that God really wants us to pay attention to these truths. These truths include fearing God, choosing wisdom over folly, being honest, choosing righteousness over wickedness, being kind to our neighbors, working hard, and being patient. This list certainly isn’t all-inclusive, as I might have missed a few truths, but the fact that we are consistently reading the same teachings over and over again must mean that we really should listen.
